"Our sense of worthiness - that critical piece that gives us access to love and belonging - lives inside our story"
So you are looking around for a psychologist and want to know if we are the right fit for you?
Finding a psychologist can be a difficult process especially if this is the first time you are coming to therapy. By definition you will be sharing with your therapist difficulties, struggles and parts of yourself that you want to work on and this makes you vulnerable. You want someone you can trust, connect with and who has the knowledge to support you. Here are a few reasons to come and see us:
Our psychologists are experienced, approachable, warm and easy to get along with. Our team at MAIA share values (see our approach) that support client wellbeing in a holistic manner while still holding our clinical and professional training at a very high standard. We support each other as a team and are committed to ongoing professional development in psychology as well as broader areas related to wellbeing.
What you share with us with stays with us. At MAIA Psychological Services, we are bound by the Australian Psychological Society’s Code of Ethics and value your privacy.
We acknowledge that you are a diverse group of humans who have unique identities based on unique experiences. We value creating an accepting, non-judgemental and inclusive environment. We meet you where you are at in your life, relationships and circumstances. We understand your story is unique and look forward to connecting with you in our sessions. We provide therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and the elderly. We all exist in relation to each other and we often find that clients will refer their children, partners, family or friends on to our service.
You will not break the bank to come and see us. Recommended fees for a session with a Clinical Psychologist are $238 per hour. Our fees and options for low income earners are well below the average charge to see a Psychologist. We believe everyone should be able to access psychological support and finance should not be a barrier.
Central Location and welcoming enivornment
We just love our little office and location and we think you will too. We have tried to create a physical environment that is non-clinical, warm and inviting while still maintaining privacy. MAIA Psychological Services is close to public transport with plenty of parking in the vicinity. We are right next door to Commune Café so you can have a coffee and a bite before or after sessions (and we can spend all of our money on yummy food and smoothies all week).
At Maia Psychological Services we pride ourselves on being that something special. We believe this extends from really enjoying the work we do. We know our therapeutic services are of a very high standard. Clients often share with us (even those who have been to therapy before) that we have exceeded their expectations. We identify ourselves as being more than just a psychology service and are driven by our passion of participating in the development of healthier communities.
At MAIA you will not only have access to individual sessions but we also offer group sessions, workshops or wellbeing and link clients in with community initiatives and forums to support your overall wellbeing.
